A/D/O is a creative space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn dedicated to expanding the reach of design. Built for designers and open to all. As it exists has a blend of styles and influences from the Scandanavian furniture of Restaurant Norman to the heavy Brooklyn furniture in the Workspace to the more utilitarian furniture in Urban-X. This proposal is meant to unify these very different aesthetics and to elevate the look so the space reads less as a tech incubator and more as a space for/by designers.
Key to this approach is bringing in certain elements from the existing design - Minimal Clean Lines and appreciation of Design Craft. Material, Color, and Texture are key in differentiating A/D/O from other co-working spaces and incubators. We should not shy away these because it is what will make the space pleasing and comfortable.
Also key is addressing the volume of A/D/O. This can be done both through creating Verticality in interiors elements, but also delicately crafting Architectural Programming to serve the needs of the spaces and the Workspace member.
